There are no watches, warnings or advisories yet, but the National Weather Service says wintry precipitation is expected across western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee tomorrow night.
A special weather statement issued by the weather bureau says one to two inches is the “safe” prediction for the entire area, but amounts could be higher in some areas depending on what the temperature is at the onset.
Areas Owensboro and south are expected to have the highest potential for higher amounts, but a mitigating factor is that there is potential for mixed precipitation in the same area which would diminish accumulations.
In any event, travel problems are possible for the Tuesday morning commute and the weather service could issue some type of watch, warning or advisory in the next 24 hours. It would be only the second winter weather event of the season. Christian County Schools have only been closed for one day this year for snow after well over a dozen last winter.
It is still possible the temperature could stay high enough this time to avoid any significant snowfall, but that of course remains to be seen. Stay tuned to the WHOP family of stations and to our websites and Facebook page for all of the latest information on this developing weather situation.
